+Your flowers will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL. Please refer to our Flower Care tab on this product page for a descriptive process on care and handling instructions.

++In the event that a substitution may be necessary, we take the utmost care in assuring that your order is as similar to your original flower choice as possible. While we will always try to reach you if this situation arises, occasionally time will not allow for this, and flower substitutions may be shipped without verbal confirmation from you. In the case of centerpieces, flowers within the same color palette will be used if possible, even if this means substituting other kinds of flowers of equal or higher value.

**Returns will only be accepted if flowers arrive in poor condition. Returns will not be accepted for circumstances resulting from negligence.

Tropical flowers are shipped directly from our farms to your doorstep. Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods. If your flowers appear sleepy and thirsty after their long journey, this is absolutely normal. Follow these simple steps to ensure your flowers have the proper care.

  1. When your box arrives, please remove your flowers from any packaging and inspect your blooms.*
  2. It is normal for tropical flowers to arrive looking squished, squeezed and flattened due to shipping conditions. They will recover after following proper care and hydration.
  3. Gather clean buckets or containers to hold your flowers.
  4. Fill the containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, lukewarm water. If flower food is available, follow the package directions for adding it to the water. However, flower food is not required.
  5. Remove any foliage that would fall below the waterline. Leaves below the waterline may cause bacteria to form, shortening the life of your flowers. 
  6. Using sharp flower shears or scissors, cut approximately 1 inch off of each stem diagonally. 
  7. Immediately after cutting the stem, place the flower in the prepared water. Not doing so in a timely manner will cause the flower veins to close and the flower will be unable to properly hydrate.
  8. Continue this process until all of your flowers are in water. Do not overcrowd your containers.
  9. Tropical flowers need a warmer environment than most cut blooms. We recommend storing tropical flowers between 65°F-75°F.
  10. Tropical flowers need to be misted 1-2 a day with room temperature water. We recommending using a squirt bottle to do this.
  11. Do not refrigerate your tropical flowers. Refrigeration will damage the blooms. Keep them away from direct sunlight, drafts, and excessive heat as well.
  12. Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate, flowers may take up to 12 hours to fully hydrate. Be sure to check the water level in your containers as tropical flowers drink a lot of water upon arrival.
  13. Change your flower water and recut the stems daily or when you start to notice discoloration in the water.

*If upon first inspection, you foresee a problem with your flowers, do not proceed processing your order. Leave the flowers intact in the box and call us immediately at 1-877-50 ROSES (507-6737)

Long Lasting Lettuce Ferns

Arrived in perfect condition, easy to arrange and added a really neat flair to the base of a 3' tall arrangement in a bright lime green color tone. We nestled yellow freesia in with the lettuce fern and it looked great! Very happy with the product. If you haven't used it before (like me) - a couple things to note: it arrives with a slightly pointed stem, but if need it more than 2" shorter, you will end up with the flat lettuce edge to work it, not a pointed stem. I experimented and ripped along the spine to see how that worked, but it didn't really change it. I was using chicken wire mechanics so didn't need to insert the stems in foam so it was of no consequence for that use. It is upright, holds its shape nicely - there were a couple that had a floppy droop, but most did not. I simply trimmed it and made use of each stem. The lettuce fern still looked pretty amazing 10 days later.

Hi Chrissie!

We love hearing that our flowers made your event even more unforgettable! Using these ferns to nestle yellow freesias is such a creative idea- we can see how they'd be perfect for that.

Thank you for your advice on arranging these, we're sure it will be of help! And we're honored to be a part of your future creations.
